ROTTA Winery » Profile

 

Rotta Winery, founded in 1908, is the oldest originally family-owned winery in San Luis Obispo County.
To longtime fans of this wine region, the name Rotta Winery might ring a few bells, but only if you were familiar with Paso Robles' wines before the rest of the country barely knew where Paso was. In fact, you have to go back several decades discover the beginnings of Rotta Winery, which was one of the first three wineries established in Paso Robles - the others were York Mountain and Pesenti.

The original vineyard and winery were started in 1856 by a Frenchman named Adolph Siot, who later sold the successful enterprise to Joe Rotta in 1905. In the 1920s, Rotta then sold it to his brother Clement Rotta, who bonded the winery after Prohibition in the 1930s and forged the label into one best known for its hearty Zinfandels.

The 20-acre Rotta estate vineyard has 15 acres in Zinfandel and five in Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Rotta label has many award-winning red wines such as Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and also Black Monukka - a dessert wine. All of the fruit for the label will be sourced from local vineyards, especially those from the Westside.We are strong believers in the potential of the Paso area, and particularly the Templeton region where the Rotta ancestors farmed.

The Rotta Tasting Room and Winery is located in the Templeton hills, and features a unique blend of history and modern Winemaking technology.
